TAHU DAN TEMPEH BACEM / SPICED TOFU AND TEMPEH 5

SEASONED TOFU/DUBU JOLIM
What I like about eating Korean food is all the small side dishes that accompany the meal. They are easy to make and they just make your meal feel oh-so-complete. I made the seasoned tofu from the Quick and Easy Korean cooking cookbook by Cecilia Hae-Jin Lee. Tofu is really […]

FRIED BEAN CURD WITH CHILI/ SAMBAL GORENG TAHU
Fried bean curd with chili is just my own rough translation of sambal goreng tahu. Sambal goreng tahu is another popular side dishes in Indonesia. It is very easy and quick to make. If you are not already familiar with Indonesian cooking or perhaps I should say Southeast Asian cooking, […]
